Review, discuss

It's a new putter from Maple Valley Plastics, right here in Michigan. The outer rim has a separate plastic piece bonded to the flight plate portion, like the Odyssey by Quest. The plate is milky, soft, and has an inner edge with a textured grip. The outer piece is tacky, and grabs onto any chain. I've hit putts with it on the outside left edge low and it went in where most would keep on flying like nothing happened. It has a Voodoo-like shape and flight path for putting at least.

its an awesome putter, i threw my friends and it was a pretty good putter
Wow, I think some thing is wrong with me? For once in my disc golf life. I don't have the desire to buy a disc. I better call 911! Oh, wait........I am 911 ;)
lol
but i wouldnt buy one


The hot stamp that will be making it onto the next firmer run of MVP ION's coming soon. Zach Mallard(http://www.zamdesign.com/tjstamps.html) and myself came up with a pretty solid stamp. 1st run's came out and were made in lighter weights. They had blue core with orange'ish red rubber outer edge. The second runs were a lot heavier and came in 4-5 different colors. The next ION's coming to shelves will be a firmer core for those who like the firmer plastic vs soft, floppy putters.

Here's a link with all the info you can read:

I like it. I suspect that the ring of different material is a very much heavier plastic than the rest of the bulk of the disc. It throws and putts well. According to the description, I must have one of the second run. Mine's red with a black rim. Very attractive.
Is it PDGA approved yet ?
Definitely. That outer ring adds to the gyroscopic effect in flight. I hear it's a great disc for throwing off the tee as well. I can't wait to get these latest ones that are being developed. I only tried putting with one a while a couple months back.
I got one about the same time I got a new wizard so still trying it out. happy so far but I need to ditch my other putters and use it 100% in a few rounds to get a better feel.
We have sold 64 of these putters in a 3 week period! My brother and some guys from my area played the Atlanta Open last weekend, and they were told that 175's have the pdga stamp, but were still waiting for the approval. They used them, and know one said everything!
I like the way the ION putts it has very little low speed fade so I aim right at the chains, I was expecting a little better glide than I am getting. My main question is just how well the outer band will hold up to trees and the edge of the chastity belt. I ordered a red on and the plastic sleeve said red but in my opinion mine is orange
I'll wait for "The Ozone"!! O3 for short.
